Tendril Lingerie Collection

Sometimes we are asked to laser cut the most delicate fabrics…

We were approached by sustainable lingerie designer Sofia Sanchez to assist in the production of her Tendril lingerie collection. Our task was to individually laser cut layers of organza fabric that make up these beautiful ruffled sleeves.

Organza is a sheer, fine and extremely delicate silk so using a laser cutting technique was quite a challenge. One small mistake could lead to the fabric being pulled or frayed and potentially destroying lots of expensive material. But our dedicated team got to work.

We started by laser cutting out one individual piece to check it was correct. As each layer had to be completely uniform, we had to make sure this first piece fell and hung in a certain way before we continued with the cutting process.

A few advantages of laser cutting fabrics:

  • You achieve the precise dimensions and details every time.
  • If the fabric contains an element of manmade fibre it will seal the edges and prevent fraying. This is useful when applique shapes are attached and can also save seams becoming bulky as no over locking is needed.
  • It’s a quicker process than hand cutting especially if there are a lot of pieces to cut.

Sofia Sanchez won the Mare di Moda Creative Excellence Award for this stunning collection.
